Mon. 12/23/13 6:08am Sem Chumbo:
Mon. 12/23/13 6:10am Guido (Cologne):
Hi Frank and hi all others. Cologne is sunny and relatively warm.
(Snow in Cologne is always ugly. Climate developement looks like we'd rather have white sping instead of White Christmas.)
The streets are overcrowded and the people are NOT really friendly.
(predestrians swearing at car owners and back.)
I'm working as usual. I prefer holidays in summer.
Mon. 12/23/13 6:15am fxo:
right off the bat, nice to be here, wit' you.
Morning Sem, mauri(afternoon), and you, as well, Guido.
make hollandaize bright.

Mon. 12/23/13 6:22am fred:
Good morning Frank and others.
It's unseasonably warm in Paris, and rainy too. I don't think it rains right now. I work underground, but I can usually tell by the leaks
Mon. 12/23/13 6:26am davex:
Sunny and unseasonably warm in Leipzig - and I'm not complaining.
Mon. 12/23/13 6:28am fxo:
thanks davex, Liepsig calling
Fred, plug the leaks, go with the flow, you might catch sumpthin'.
Mon. 12/23/13 6:30am fxo:
mis- spelling cities, is my forte (Leipzig, eh?)
Mon. 12/23/13 6:35am Guido (Cologne):
Ask a German if Leipzig is spelled with a "p" or a "b" in the middle.
Nice blast of modern psychedelia this Midsummer Dream.
Mon. 12/23/13 6:35am listen machen:
Mon. 12/23/13 6:38am fxo:
Guido, I sit corrected.
Glad you're enjoying all of this mish-mosh, listen machen.
Mon. 12/23/13 6:39am Windy City:
Hey Frank, nice show this AM.
Mon. 12/23/13 6:39am davex:
Leipzig is the place - which I will soon be trawling in a last pre-holiday panic attack.
Mon. 12/23/13 6:44am kat330:
Hi, Frank. Thanks for the TMBG holiday mix! For whatever reason, I could barely hear it through either of two Internet radios, even cranking it up.
Ah, my man Van Ronk! :)
Mon. 12/23/13 6:45am fxo:
thanks Windy City.
kat330: nice to oblige...

Mon. 12/23/13 7:04am Guido (Cologne):
Interesting late Move track.
I was first about to say it's a West-Coast group doing Tennessee Waltz.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:06am 3d-nyc:
@ L. Davis-Its chock full of music and impeccably recorded-
(as a 1-sentence revu :-)

Mon. 12/23/13 7:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Jeffrey Davison has been celebrating Dave Van Ronk recently on his Sat. A.M. 'Folk' Show here - which is highly recommended.
3d-nyc: Are you Borged into the Friendship Society, or still answering math questions to comment? Ya gotta get jumped in the gang 'fore ye kin upload a 'tar (...As hive mind-control goes, Victor Borge is not so bad)...Once you Submit thusly, on your Profile Settings page you can Upload a Photo, & then choose it for a 'Tar...
Mon. 12/23/13 7:23am fxo:

Mon. 12/23/13 7:24am Polk Biggins:
Hullo Frank and Interweb-land. Guten Morgen. Wide awake and dreaming in the Midwest.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...just above Freezing here in NewHampshuh just now - expected high around 42°F. The situation is Freezing Rain though - especially North of here in upstate NH & Vermont - which is hazardous travel & falling tree limbs & power outages & such...Was more like deep January temps earlier, & now record highs around...Okay...
Mon. 12/23/13 7:25am kat330:
Friendship Society def ignition: A many Kentacled Octopi WFMU cult.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:27am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...Defined In Dig Nation
...back to 20°s & 30°sF after today...
Mon. 12/23/13 7:29am fxo:
wherever you are, blame the weather.
kat: what she said.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:29am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...it sucks up all my time, exerts powerful peer pressure, requests my money...just add Ian Astbury & Dan Bodah's Hubbard 'tar & you gotta Cult awlright...
Mon. 12/23/13 7:30am kat330:
Yeah, safer to discuss the weather all right.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:30am 3d-nyc:
@ LLewynn Davis;
There is a suprising B&W clip of Alan Lomax-
( suprizing to me anyway)
Tks for the Avatar tips!-will attempt again with tips in hand-
Mon. 12/23/13 7:31am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
MarkTwain: Climate is what you expect, Weather is what you get.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:33am fxo:
thanks Polk Biggins. Where's yer "Ring"?
Mon. 12/23/13 7:34am kat330:
@3d-nyc: And like with Scientology, you'll get shunned if you don't toe the party line.
Oh, goodie, Philo just climbed out of bed. Warmth now.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:37am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...it is, however, a Party w/ very nice balloons & occasional Live performers...
Mon. 12/23/13 7:40am Polk Biggins:
@fxo Gollum? Crept 'up and slipped away with it (apologies to Robert Plant)...
Mon. 12/23/13 7:40am 3d-nyc:
@ L. Davis Movie:
Numerous NYC location shots.. it is a period-piece to some degree-
one odd continunity note- a lamp post base was clearly 1980's or later- apparent to native NYers only tho-
Mon. 12/23/13 7:42am kat330:
Nice watery mix in this part of the set.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:43am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- wonder how it'll compare/contrast to Todd Haynes' 'I'm Not There' impression of Dylan - which I thot was great. Coen Brothers seem basically infallible ??
Mon. 12/23/13 7:44am fxo:
apparently they recreated the cover of "Freewheeling". Just don't tell about the spectacular ending (JK).
Mon. 12/23/13 7:49am 3d-nyc:
@ FXO's new pledge CD track
#11-Come together Good (DJ LK Mashup)
turns heads if you play it with the car windows open
Mon. 12/23/13 7:51am Philo Gristle:
Morning all! For once able to stay around, if -- of course -- not getting up early enough to start from the beginning.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:57am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- still never heard this Crosby album. Supposed to be the stuff.
Mon. 12/23/13 7:58am northguineahills:
It is, Rev Rabbit...
Mon. 12/23/13 7:59am pierre:
Mon. 12/23/13 8:00am Sem Chumbo:
RevRab: scrounge up a copy. Worth the trouble.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:01am Philo Gristle:
Saw Barry Gibb on SNL this weekend, thought he was the lost brother of David Crosby. Kat'll be back when breakfast is served.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:02am fxo:
Pierre: bonjour back atcha.
Philo: remember the archive will represent the entire 3 hour webcast, should you need it...
the only Crosby album that I need...
Mon. 12/23/13 8:02am Brian in UK:
G'day fxo. Well, wet, windy 'n wretched here. Good afternoon Europe. Any Albanians out there!!!
Mon. 12/23/13 8:02am mauri:
Mon. 12/23/13 8:04am Guido (Cologne):
David Crosby "If I Could Remember My Name" is great!
Shoud be a cheapo. I found it for € 1,-
Mon. 12/23/13 8:04am Philo Gristle:
@fxo Nice to see Harvey Bainbridge there, for an old Hawkwind fan...
Mon. 12/23/13 8:06am Some Albanian:
Brian in UK: Po, çfarë ishte ajo që keni kërkuar?
Mon. 12/23/13 8:07am fxo:
I don't think the Crosby album is a cheapo. One extra track + DVD remastered.
good afternoon, Brian in UK.
we have a new friend, from Albania. Cool.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:07am kat330:
"Montclair, NJ, band formed by Myrna Marcarian and Geoff Feinberg" -- locavore music.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:10am kat330:
@Sem Albanian: Philo and I are New Albanians (for the moment and until we blow this burg anyway).
Mon. 12/23/13 8:11am Brian in UK:
You Canadians. Hope you avoided the ice plague earlier.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:13am Guido (Cologne):
Ahhh ... David Crosby Luxury Edition!
Mine is a cheesy late 80ies CD.
Good enough for the price.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:14am Brian in UK:
Anyone got a copy of 'Take Me back to Tirana, Before my Mother's Ankles Swell to the Size of a Melon'. It was very popular in Hoxha's time.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:15am kat330:
Wonderful Guaraldi shines through no matter how mixed up it gets.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:15am Parq:
Loving this 'Nuts groove.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:17am common:

Mon. 12/23/13 8:17am Jeroen Kuster:

Mon. 12/23/13 8:19am fxo:
thanks for the feedback, Parq, common, & Jeroen.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:22am 3d-nyc:
@ Brian in UK:
Quite a title--what year (s) was that?
Mon. 12/23/13 8:24am Brian in UK:
50s though to late 70s. Beatles took over after that.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:26am Parq:
Billy May and Cheech and Chong? AND the Temps? Oh man, that was something else.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:28am Your Albanian Travel Guide:
Brian in UK @ 8:14: that tune and many more, lyrics rendered phonetically and w/ sheet music in "The Cursed Mountain", in which Albania compares favourably with the 7th circle of Hell.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:31am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- McCoy Tyner ?
Mon. 12/23/13 8:32am Polk Biggins:
Had to step away from the machine to make some green tea + coconut oil.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...if you think about it, surprising they've never done an oh-ficial quality master release of the Beatle FanClub Xmas records...
Mon. 12/23/13 8:35am Brian in UK:
Hello Freda Kelly.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:37am Polk Biggins:
Anyone here ever listen to that unreleased Beatles track, 'Carnival of Light' (I think it was called)? I wasn't able to track it down.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:38am kat330:
Glad you're in your cups and enjoying holiday cheer, Brian in UK.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:40am SB:
Oh Wait a min...;That message was from 69.That one John is freakin' hilarious on.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...looks like *this* is still up for a minute ! :
...'Carnival of Light' is legendary...I think I heard a moment of it?? There was that radio show 'The Lost Lennon Tapes' - which in retrospect I wish I'd taped all of...altho' 'Carnival' leaning SirMacca I believe?...
Mon. 12/23/13 8:40am Jeezy:
Ah, the Beatle Xmas messages never get old...
Mon. 12/23/13 8:40am 3d-nyc:
Heading out- into the Brooklyn rain-
Great show Fxo- will catch up in the archives-
Thanks for the Avatar tips-
And a good week for all and to all a good week :)
Mon. 12/23/13 8:41am kat330:
Be of good cheer, 3d-nyc!
Mon. 12/23/13 8:42am Brian in UK:
@kat Just finished work, so slightly frazzled.
Freda was the Beatles fan club secretary ofcourse.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:43am Jeezy:
Hmmm... that iTunes thing is odd. It can't be official?!
Mon. 12/23/13 8:43am fxo:
SB: I sit corrected.
Brian: there's a documentary about Freda.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:43am kat330:
Bocoors. Work just finished? Well, then, time to start getting into your cups.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Jeezy: They had to because the Copyright was expiring! Dylan did this recently too - & they wonder if we'll get stuff like this every year (if Copyright law doesn't change some more).
Mon. 12/23/13 8:46am Guido (Cologne):
Mon. 12/23/13 8:47am SB:
It's the 68' one that John is very,very angry on;And is bashing all his bandmates via some crazy poetry.Anyhoo...Happy Christmas all.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:48am Brian in UK:
'Good 'Ol Freda'
Nice one fxo. Happy Festivities everyone.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:49am fxo:
insert here: time's running out, thank y'all for the cool comments. Merry Krimble. I'll be back next week, same time zone.
and kat: it might be too early for our cups, unless you can get away with it.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:49am kat330:
Yep, signing off, too. The bestest of festiveness to everyone!
@fxo: Brian's on UK time. Wasn't suggesting it for EDT.
Mon. 12/23/13 8:50am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- the Bros. bring it - huh?!
Jeezy: It's also expected it won't be up long - so to $40 or not to ??...
...'including some of their Beast Friends...the outdated busloady'...Honestly, I love John's harsh genius wordplay as part of the deal along w/ the peace & love - granted never had it aimed directly @ me...
Mon. 12/23/13 8:50am Jeezy:
Hmmm... And they say: The copyright in these sound recordings is owned by Calderstone Productions Limited (a division of Universal Music Group).
So Apple doesn't own these?
Mon. 12/23/13 8:51am Jeezy:
Well I've heard most of it already through the years... I'd never heard "I'm in Love" though!
Mon. 12/23/13 8:52am fxo:
peace on all of us.
peace in the valley...
